I figure they could acquire a decent 1st round pick and maybe a 2nd or 3rd round pick in exchange for Bernier (similar to the Varlamov trade). Then they could add more picks and replenish the depth in the system by moving their own 1st round pick for additional 2nd round picks.

The Kings could go from having one pick in the first three rounds to 4 picks. If they have their eyes on next years draft or the 2014 draft, they can acquire picks in those years instead.
Either one, but the picks are probably more realistic. I don't see them getting a big-time roster player for JB and a 1st.

But as you say, they could easily turn JB and that 1st into 4-6 picks in the first 3 rounds.
